EXPLORER SCOUTS KENYA PROJECT
24 Scouts and 8 Leaders will be building a computer classroom at Rabai and a kitchen and dining room at St Clement School, Malindi, in July, funded by a £20,000 grant from Jersey Overseas Aid. They are aslo trying to raise £3,500 to build a toilet and shower block for St Clement Malindi, where there are only two toilets for over 250 children.
The showers will be useful for the Scouts when they work there for three weeks in July/August, and also for groups staying at the school, the children can use after sport, or just for having a shower as they have no bathroom at home.
The Scouts are appealing for donations and selling 'BRICKS' at £5 each. A sheet for donations is at the back of the church. Thank you.
The Scouts are selling bags of logs for £5 in aid of their Kenya trip. Please see David if you would like to buy some.
